Pacific's May Day Festival Approaches 



P. C. Reviews of 
Senior Who's Who 



One of the farmer boys of the 
Senior class is Ervin P. Atrops, 
born July 10, 1916, at Sherwood, 
Ore. He received his education in 
Minnesota, Sherwood and Tigard, 
and is completing it at Pacific 
college. He will receive a Bach- 
elor of Science degree and plans 
to take up some form of work 
along the line of chemistry. 

His hobby is collecting guns 
and be likes to hunt, fish and 
play football. 

Willis D. Barney, "the young- 
est," was born October 4, 1920, 
at Centralia, Wash. He received 
his high school education at Wash- 
ougal and entered Pacific college 
the second semester of his fresh- 
man year, having gone to Seattle 
Pacific college the first semester. 
He will receive a Bachelor of Arts 
degree and hopes to become a 
preacher. His activities this sum- 
mer and next fall, however, are

Research Reveals 
May Day Not New, 

About 2,181 years ago — on 
April 28, 241 B. C. — the first 
May Day was held in Rome. This 
was in celebration and worship of 
Flora, goddess of flowers and 
spring. The custom of having the 
May Queen seems to be a relic 
of the celebration of the day when 
Flora was especially worshipped. 
It is even thought that this cus- 
tom of Rome came from India 
and Egypt. 

"Going a-Maying" was very pop- 
ular during medieval and early 
modern times in England. At 
BUnrise on May Day everyone, old 
and young, rich and poor, went 
searching for flowers. Returning, 
they had many beautiful ceremon- 
ies in the village. 

The fairest maid of the village 
was crowned with flowers, called 
"Queen of the May," placed in a 
little bower or arbor, and was 
given homage and admiration of 
youthful revellers who danced and 
aang around her. A fixed pole, 
called the May pole, was erected 
in every village. This was as 
high as the mast of a vessel of 
100 tons. Wreaths of flowers 
were suspended on it, and all day 
the merrymakers danced around it 
in circles. 

May Day is also observed in 
America. Perhaps you remember 
when, as a child, you used to 
hang May baskets at doors, knock, 
and run. Due to weather condi- 
tions May Day is not necessarily 
on May 1. 

As you can see, the Pacific 
college celebration on May 3 is 
na thine more than the repetition

PRESIDENT'S CHAPEL 
SPEECH ON "AGATES" 



President Pennington compared 
a person to an agate in his Mon- 
day morning talk in chapel April 
22. He spoke of taking several 
agates which he had found to an 
expert to be examined. 

On? agate had its beautiful fig- 
ure on the outside. There was 
no depth to it. 

"How many folks have their 
culture on the surface," said Mr. 
Pennington. 

Another agate was just an ord- 
inary one with nothing unusual 
about it. "There are human be- 
ings with nothing much to them," 
he stated. 

One stone which President Pen- 
nington found did have character, 
but the expert said it was "soft." 
Mr. Pennington spoke of people 
who can not stand up against any 
kind of opposition. 

There was one more agate which 
was beautiful, but the expert 
pointed out a crack or flaw right 
in the heart of the beauty. The 
speaker said there are capable 
pople who have failed in one way. 

President Pennington added that 
lie did find some eood ajeatea. 



What a World, 
Declares Prof. 



"What a world!" said Mr. 
Sanders, when he spoke on that 
subject in chapel Thursday, April 
18. 

The question asked and an- 
swered»by the speaker was: "What 
would a person alighting on the 
campus from Mars think of this 
world?" 

According to Mr. Sanders, one 
should have both a negative and 
positive aspect in telling of this 
world. We should mention the 
forest fires and dust bowl areas 
as well as the beautiful forests 
and fertile fields. 

Another question asked was: 
"How do we get along?" We 
have health regulations, police 
forces, postal systems, but also 
politics and its pork-barrel sys- 
tem. 

This is a world of education. 
The library offers a great oppor- 
tunity and now there is scientific 
equipment for use in education. 

In describing the world Mr. 
Sanders mentioned that it is a 
world of joy and lasting beauty, 
it is a world full of danger, and 
it is. formed by what you make

MR. DIMENT DISCUSSES 
TRIP TO MEXICO 



Veldon Diment, field secretary 
of Pacific college, returned to 
Newberg last week after a four 
weeks' vacation trip to Old Mex- 
ico. His trip took him through 
California, Mexico, Arizona, Tex- 
as, Colorado and Utah, 7,700 milea 
in all. 

Scenes of interest that he told 
of were: The vividly colored 
Grand Canyon in Colorado; Zion 
National Park where he saw the 
Great White Throne; the Petrified 
Forest in Arizona which covers a 
distance of about 23 miles; the 
Mormon Temple at Salt Lake City 
where he heard the pipe organ 
play; and the Floating Gardens at

Tid Bits From May Day 

We wish to congratulate Howard Harrison, our festival 
generalissimo, upon his fine leadership for May day. At 
last we have seen honest enthusiasm among the students 
for our greatest celebration of the year. That is, we have 
seen it in most things — we can't say much about the cos- 
tumes — embarrassing, you know. The fact that there were 
quite a few students who did not want to dress as a char- 
acter in keeping with May day is not surprising when you 
realize that not everyone can let go and really have fun if 
they are afraid they might look ridiculous. There were 
those who said that May day should be such a serious af- 
fair that such costumes as Humpty Dumpty and Mother 
Goose would look absolutely freakish. However, May day 
was originally a celebration given by peasants who merrily 
danced and sang before "a chosen queen. They made it an 
occasion of true festivity and thanksgiving. Merriment, 
even grotesque costumes are appropriately in order. It is 
an occasion for fun. The townspeople, themselves, will en- 
joy it more when they see not a stilted, solemn ritual but 
a merry bunch really celebrating the coming of May. They 
don't come to be educated but to be entertained. What do 
you say? Shall we really celebrate? 



WHAT DO WE NEED? 

Many years ago a holy man 
said, "Unto every one that hath 
shall be given, and he shall have 
abundance, but from him that 
hath not shall be taken away 
that which he hath." 

There has been a great deal 
of discussion on the campus con- 
cerning the need of a better or- 
ganized student body. Various 
suggestions have been, made — 
some excellent ones, too. 

But just as the parable tells 
of the man with one talent bury- 
ing it for safekeeping, the Pacific 
College Student Body has not been 
making the best use of the one 
"talent" in its possession. 

In the first place, a very small 
percentage of the students turn 
out for student body meetings. 
In the second place, motions are 
rushed through without proper 
discussion and consideration. 
Sometimes it seems as though 
some of the students are trying 
to break the world's record of 
speed in putting through motions. 
A little "brushing up" on Roberts' 
Rules of Order wouldn't harm any 
of us either. In the third place, 
the students have not demanded 
the best of their officers, nor have 
they insisted on using the means 
they have in gaining the consid- 
eration of the faculty on matters 
that should be referred to the 
student-faculty committee on co- 
operation. 

The faculty is ready and will- 
ing at any time to consider the 
wishes of the student body. When 
the atudent body refers matters 
to the student-faculty committee 
they have a right to expect con- 
sideration. If they expect it they 
will receive it. 

This is not a discussion of 
whether or not ihe present sys- 
tem is efficient. No doubt im- 



student must feel individual re- 
sponsibility before any system will 
be effective. Each student must 
demand the best of the student 
body officers and the student body 
must make use of the power it 
now has. 

As in the parable of old, "Use 
to the best advantage those tal- 
ents which you now possess and 
more shall be added. If you fail 
to use them, even those you have 
will be taken away." 



Boys' Dormitory 
News 



Dear Rats: 

Things have been quite dull. 
Last Friday Howard McCurley had 
an operation on his side. It didn't 
seem to bother bim. 

Kenny Booth has been getting 
around a lot lately. Last Satur- 
day he went to. Salem with Dick 
Binford, and returned with Ar- 
nold and the deputation team Sun- 
day night. This weekend he and 
Jimmy Webb went to Jimmy's 
home at the coast. 

Bill Hays was over at the dorm 
the other day and said no girl is 
going to wear his letterman's 
sweater this year, even though 
someone is trying. 

Galen Miller has been going in- 
to Portland as usual, only he has 
been having his father as chauf- 
feur. I still wish I could have 
as much attention as Galen does 
from those girls, all because he 
has a sprained ankle, 

I hear someone upstairs count- 
ing up the days in summer vaca- 
tion. There will be only 81 days 
of dieting for me. 

Goodbye now, 



Poetic Talent 
Uncovered 

The following poems have been 
submitted to the Crescent by the 
Freshman Composition Class, who 
found in one of their assignments 
talent that might otherwise have 
been unobserved. The poems sub- 
mitted here are among the best 
of those entered. 



THE LIFE FOB ME 
Kenneth Booth 
I would love to go back to the 
ocean 

Where the sea is rough and wide 
And I would feel my muscles 

straining 
As I'd row against the tide. 

I would go from one place to an- 
other 

With high hopes in my heart, 
And when my spot I'd chosen 
My business I would start. 

I would set my lines with cunning 
In the paths where the fishes run.- 
If my luck were right I'd be loaded 
When my work for the day is done. 

I am tired of the life of the city 
With all of its noise and strain; 
Take me back where the breeze 
is salty 

And the air feels fresh again. 



MY LOST YOUTH 
or 

THE PBICE OF FAME 
By Jim Spirup 

My eyes are heavy, but not with 
toil, 

Nor grew they so from worldly 
woe, 

As men's have oft' been known 
to do. 

For I have been a poem's spoil; 
And mine has been the fate of 
those 

Condemned to writing rhyming 
prose. 

For under the halls of old P. C. 
Is the composition class; 
Where students must write poetry 
If they desire to pass. 
And I too am found among the 
poor 

Who must wrack their skimpy 

mental store 
For lovely thoughts of blooming 

trees, 

Of flowers, of Spring and buzzing 
bees. 

But my work all seems of no avail. 
For I am only growing stale. 
I try to make it live and snappy, 
But it always sounds so sappy 
That I end up more unhappy 
Than I ever was before. 
'Tis only passing dribble — 
What good in days afore. 
To sit, and read, and scribble 
Only this, and nothing more. 
And so as you dwell upon my 
work, 

Please don't dismiss it with a 
shirk. 

But dwell on it with tender glance, 
It symbolizes hours of pain — 
Write, erase, and write again. 
It stands for hours of mental toil, 
Much worse than tilling loamy soil. 
And think that I have lost the 
chance, 

To in the light of youthful days, 
Again upon this world to gaze. 
Creating poems is such a strain, 
That I can ne're be young again. 
Condemned to live beyond my 
years, 

To review my youth through idle 
tears. 

Forever removed from youthful 
bliss, 

And all because of this, of this.

Life of Audubon 



With a bit of observation, one 
may see many changes taking 
place. Trees that stood out like 
ghostly skeletons during the win- 
ter months are now putting forth 
their leaves. The budding trees, 
blossoming flowers and green 
grass welcome back once more 
our feathered friends. Trees and 
flowers would be very lifeless if 
the robin were not here to chirp, 
or the swallow to glide gracefully 
about. 

There have been many bird 
lovers, but one whom we all know 
and in whose name many societies 
have been organized for the pro- 
tection of bird life, is that of 
John James Audubon. 

John Audubon was born in Les 
Gayes, Haiti, on April 26, 1785, 
just 106 years ago this month. 
During childhood and throughout 
his entire life he showed an ab- 
sorbing interest in all living 
things, especially birds. John Au- 
dubon was a keen and sympathetic 
observer. 

Finding nature very artistic and 
wishing to paint some of the 
sights he witnessed, John Audubon 
studied art in France, under the 
great artist, David. 

After acquiring an education, 
he returned to America to live 
on a small farm in Philadelphia. 
Ten years later he married Miss 
Lucy Bakewell, an English girl. 

John Audubon spent much of 
his time elaborating on the many 
sketches of birds and wild life 
that he had sketched when a boy. 
He published these pictures in the 
year 1838 under the title, "The 
Birds of America." There were 
1,065 paintings of American birds 
in this one publication. 

He purchased his last home on 
a site near the Hudson river. This 
site is now known as the Audu- 
bon park of New York. Ill health 
caused his death in the year 1851. 

Audubon societies have been or- 
ganized over the entire nation for 
bird-lovers who want to work to 
education public opinion to a 
proper appreciation and protection 
of bird life. 



ARCHERY CLUB FORMED 
BY BOWMEN PROSPECTS 



P. C. REVIEWS OP 
SENIOR WHO'S WHO 



(Continued from page one) 



Pacific college is going to have 
an archery club. Mr. Lewis, the 
former archery instructor here 
and an excellent authority on the 
making of bows and arrows, is 
devoting an hour or two every 
week to instruct those interested 
in the technique of archery. 

Several students, including 
Jean Chase, Helen Robertson, 
Jeanne Follette and Bob Seiloff, 
have been turning out. and are 
making efforts to organize a real 
archery club for the business of 
learning to shoot accurately as 
well as to make bows and arrows. 

If you are interested in arch- 
ery, whether you arc experienced 
or not, please show your interest 
by coming out to archery prac- 
tice any night next week. You 
will find someone practicing on 
the porth campus any time be- 
tween four and six. Please help 
them by turning out. 



MR. DIMENT DISCUSSES 
TRIP TO MEXICO 



(Continued from page one) 

Mexico City. Of all, he said he 
liked the Floating Gardens much 
the best. 

Mr. Diment was greatly im- 
pressed with the life of the Mexi- 
can people. Most of them live in 
adobe huts with few windows. 
They have a very poor water sup- 
ply but all of them have beautiful 
flower gardens. No matter how 
poor they are, they have many 
fiestas. Their main sport is bull 
fighting, but large crowds also 
attend baseball games. The peo- 
ple as a whole Beem easy going 
and happy. In contrast to the 
poverty of the people are the 
beautiful temples and Catholic 
churches. 

"The most beautiful river I 
Baw," Mr. Diment concluded 
laughingly, "was the Columbia." 




uncertain. Willis has- no special 
hobby but believes his favorite 
sport is basketball. 

Mr. Bennett (we call him Jack) 
was born, reared and educated in 
Newberg, Ore. Since he was born 
September 20, 1918, he is now 
21 years old. 

After his graduation in June, 
he plans to work this summer and 
enter Oregon State college next 
fall to further his study in chem- 
istry. He hopes to be a chemist 
and has completed a course at 
Pacific college which will give 
him a Bachelor of Science degree. 
Jack likes to play basketball and 
cheBS and is one of our more studi- 
ous seniors. 

Harold "Buck" Davis, a farmer 
boy of Newberg, was born Janu- 
ary 15, 1920, and is therefore 20 
years old. He was born, reared 
and educated at Newberg. 

As yet, he is uncertain as to 
which profession he will follow. 

will garduate from Pacific col- 
lege in June, receiving a Bachelor 
of Arts degree, and plans to work 
where work can be found. 

He is very diversified in ath- 
letics, playing baseball, basketball 
and ping-pong. His favorite books 
even follow the line of sports. 

His hobbies vary from the out- 
door sports of hunting and fishing 



This is Jimmy Tattler coming 
to you from Pacific college where 
freak consumption hit an all-time 
high last Saturday when Jean 
Chase consumed not only the tra- 
ditional gold fish but a six-inch 
night-crawler as well, for 75c. 
He's now working on a price scale. 

It comes directly to your re- 
porter that David Michener has 
taken to escorting strange girls 
home. His only excuse was that 
they "just asked me — " 

Is Abigail Miller practicing 
polygamy or is driving to Sher- 
wood with three dorm boys a com- 
mon occurrence in the younger 
set? 

Rumor has it that Melvin Ash- 
will is giving Browning a run for 
his money with "his new "even 
bloodier" version of "Porphyria's 
Lover." 

According to Mark Fantetti his 
interest in the mayor's sister is 
"purely political." 

The latest outrage is the jitter- 
bug step with which Willis Bar- 
ney does the Maypole dance. 

The circus in Portland last Sat- 
urday night was an eye-opener. 
Who'd have guessed that Bob Sie- 
loff was interested in journalism! 

It appears that Alice Gulley, 
Arnold Booth, Abigail Miller and 
George Thomas like to hike best 
after dark. 

Well, that seems to be all I 
can tell you that's printable right 
now. Incidentally we wonder what 
George Beagles would do if he 
saw his name in the gossip column.

Dear Mousie: 

My whiskers! there were clouds 
of confetti floating around the 
parlor Wednesday afternoon when 
the girls gave a shower for Mary 
Thornsberry. 

Sunburns seemed to be in order 
this weekend when everybody re- 
turned home from the beach. Mr. 
Sanders had an unusually ruddy 
blush. 

Irene has been cutting quite a 
figure on the baseball diamond 
recently. 

Someone asked Galen why he 
didn't soak his head as well as 
his foot and Mr. Sanders, who 
was standing by, said, "Probably 
he hasn't sprained it, yet." 

I often wonder about the two 
frosh girls here. This past week 
they mumbled and talked to them- 
selves all day long and so on into 
the night. I heard someone say 
they were composing poetry. What 
next! 

Typical scene on the woodpile: 
Katie and Clyde studying all about 
the little birds and trees. 

New mystery question for -the 
week: Were Alice and Irene hav- 
ing a fight when the alarm clock 
went out the window or was it, 
an accident? 

Tsk! Tsk! There goes the sup- 
per bell. So long.

FROM THE 

SIDELINES 

Well, right now there are more 
Bports going on at P. C. than at 
any other time of the year. We 
have baseball, Softball, track and 
tennis, all with the group of de- 
votees. 

Proliably the most novel and 
interesting event of late was the 
Multnomah track meet. Although 
we came out on I lie short end of 
the score, the P. C. lads did ex- 
ceptionally well. The most out- 
standing feature, no doubt, was 
the double triumph of Booth and 
Kendall in the pole vault. Booth 
also did well in several of the 
middle distance runs, while Ken- 
dall had a very efficient hand in 
most of the events. 

Cunningham and Ra"rick also 
showed up well. The most excit- 
ing event was the 80-yard sprint 
won by our own Dale Smith, in 
the pretty fair time of 9 seconds. 
We venture to say that P. C. 
has a real prospect in the flying 
Aberdeen lad. 

In tennis, both teams are doing 
well enough for themselves. Tate 
la a stand-out. Both Mark and 
Mary Lou should he congratulated 
on their efforts in putting tennis 
into our spring schedule. 

As to baseball, well you know 
as much as we do. The fellows 
have been dogged with a jinx all 
season: accidents, injuries, not to 
mention a bad case of one, two 
three strikes "you're out" in the 
old ball game, and last but not 
least ibe loss of Captain Kendall, 
leadoff man and outfield star. 

We regret to report that Galen 
Miller, an exceptional! promising 
keystone sacker, will he unable to 
Teturn this year, due to the un- 
expected severity of his ankle in- 
jury. 

However, In watching recent 
practices, we couldn't help but no- 
tice a slouchy, careless, lifeless 
attitude. The infield is as steady 
as Uncle Louie's hat in a cyclone, 
and the outfield moves as if they 
were tied to posts. 

It isn't this inability to stop 
grounders, or the wild throws that 
we care about — they can be ironed 
out with practice; but rather it's 
the whipped-dog attitude of the 
players, the lack of tire, snap and 
enthusiasm. 

Some of the things we'd like 
to see: Earl Smith steal a base; 
Spirup stop a grounder; Hewitt 
get a hit; Daniels catch a fly; 
Hadlock make a decent peg; At- 
rops say a little more; Heald a 
bit less; and Beese just say some- 
thing and Stan break down and 
give the fellows the tongue-lashing 
that they deserve. 

It is also this writer's 'opinion 
that once they start rolling, the 
infield will become as good as any 
seen at P. C. in a long time. 
Beese is a rock at third, covering 
his own position and a good deal 
of shortstop; Heald is a spark- 
plug and a good catcher; Thomas' 
play at second the last several 



heart; Smith at first has fine 
footwork, and can stretch more 
for bad throws than anyone we've 
seen in a long time; and Spirup, 
when he settles down to the form 
shown earlier in the season, will 
hold his own with any of the 
others. 

We have plenty of power iri Kel- 
lar, Davis and Beese; incidentally, 
watch Daniels' stick work when 
he gets his chance. Stan is plan- 
nnig to use him as a pinch-hitter, 
which we believe is a good move. 

You yourselves can help by giv- 
ing the team your support. You 
did it in football. Nothing helps 
the fellows like knowing you are 
behind and with them. 

So, you fellows on the team, 
get down to business, give your 
all, and give Stan the support that 
he deserves. And you, fellow 
students, be at the games, fight- 
ing toe and nail for Pacific. To- 
gether we'll pull P. C. out of the 
rut that she's been in too long, 
and put her up with the best in 
the win column.
